Feed The Forgotten - URGENT!

There are so many great ways to get involved for the cause of the orphan. David and I are passionate not only about adoption and Ethiopia but we are passionate for life. Passionate about making a difference in the lives of others in the name of Jesus. He has commanded us to care for orphans and widows, it is our HONOR to love on the least of these. We've seen it first hand, starvation and hunger is real. Its SO real. I don't often post these types of messages but today I am URGING each one of you that reads this to take action.

Operation Feed the Forgotten! Uganda is in desperate need of food. People are resorting to trapping bugs, eating dung, and doing whatever they can just to live. This is unacceptable. We have so much. We MUST take action. Need to read more? Check out
this article.


James 2:18 says - But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do.

James 2:26 - As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

Its about

ACTION!

All to often I think we read these stories of starving children, starving families, mothers who can't even nurse their babies because they have no nourishment themselves, mothers who would do anything to get food into their babies tummies. The need is NOW! We CAN help. We are partnering with Children's Hope Chest to make a difference in the lives of these precious children and families. You CAN help! Click here to donate and make a difference in the lives of others.

Lets think about something. (this was taken with permission from Brandi's blog)


For $0.14 we can (and we WILL) feed someone a meal of posho and beans. (Posho is cornmeal, its filling, and beans are protein) Take that in for a moment.....

$0.14 a meal.

$2.86 for 20 days.


$1 per FAMILY.

$20 FEEDS a family for 20 days!

How much do you spend on a Starbucks? One meal out? How much was Fridays lunch out? Are you willing to give up one meal so that others can eat?

You can read more on my friend Brandi's blog she was in Uganda recently, she saw first hand the HUGE need, she loved on these sweet babies, hugged their mamas, and experienced their deep need for something we in American consider a basic. FOOD.

These sweet faces are starving. Yes STARVING. Hopechest is targeting 3-4 villages where the people are truly in DESPERATE need. Mothers like us, starving. Children like our own, STARVING.

Won't you help fill their tummies?


Won't you consider giving just $20 to feed a family for 20 days? YOU CAN make a difference?GIVE today to FEED THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN. Click here to donate!
